On the evening of 29 September 2023, Monte Carlo was once again illuminated with the glitz and glamour of the annual BOAT International party during the Monaco Yacht Show, sponsored by Ocean Alexander, Boeing Business Jets, Compass Tenders, HFW, Nobiskrug, Oyster Yachts and Superyacht Partners. This year's festivities were made even more special as the luxury superyacht magazine was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Take a look inside the exclusive event…
This year, the choice of venue was the exquisite Le Méridien Beach Plaza in Monte Carlo, a chic poolside terrace overlooking the glistening Mediterranean Sea. An array of superyachts illuminated like jewels on the horizon and lent a truly magical atmosphere to the evening.
To celebrate BOAT's 40th year, ruby was chosen as the theme for the night and esteemed industry professionals, including designers, builders, brokers and other friends of BOAT International, gathered to celebrate this remarkable milestone. Attendees were requested to wear a touch of red in honour, adding a vibrant splash of colour to the evening's dress code.
The evening got off to a showstopping start: BOAT International's CEO Toby Moore took the stage to make a commemorative speech followed by a dazzling performance from a saxophonist whose instrument was lit up with sparklers. A talented DJ set the tone and kept guests on their feet and dancing the night away. The musicians were courtesy of GF Entertainment.
Ocean Alexander and Compass Tenders displayed some impressive models around the event. Meanwhile, Boeing Business Jets wowed attendees with an impressive model and a stylish winglet bar.
